The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology is moving forward on a student wellness center after an alumnus donated $2 million for the project.
The school says the donation by Stephen D. Newlin should allow construction to start in February.
Students have already approved nearly $7 million in fees for the $8.9 million project.
The 34,000-square feet building will include two basketball courts, a group fitness room, rock climbing wall, locker rooms, and space for weight and cardio machines.
Newlin is president and chief executive officer of PolyOne Corp.
